calling it, as storms move into the region. a live look at the center city skyline. just setting the stage for what's to come later on. meteorologist steve sosna is keeping close watch it have and is here to tell us what to expect. steve? we call ourselves neighborhood weather and it is neighborhood by neighborhood where we're seeing the variations and conditions, random pop-up downpours. you can fire up your app to see if the downpour is near you. zoom right into your street level and you'll need that app throughout the day because the steady, soaking rain will continue. we're going to being at this rain gel in a widespread batch as we go through the afternoon and evening hours. the wind component of the storm we've been advertising kicks in tomorrow. today it's breezy. tomorrow winds upwards of 20 miles an hour. all of our neighborhoods are cloudy now. i have been finding some light rain here across northern areas of new castle county.
don't be surprised if the rain starts up quickly in your neighborhood going from overcast to rainy very fast where temperatures are around 60 degrees. for my friends in montgomery and bucks county. 60 in lansdale. 60 up in bedminster. 60 in new hope. not a huge spread in temperatures but we are seeing a lot of humidity in the air. it's a very humid day, a lot of hair spray and also you can sweat pretty easily in this. a t-shirt or a light jacket here but nothing heavy for the day today. heavy rainfall is located across the state of delaware and i've been watching the rain all morning long creep to the north so it's moving through, again, chester, new castle county and then through the beaches in delaware. right now it's 63 in philadelphia with that overcast sky. that overcast will continue along with these mild temperatures shooting for a high of 69 today in philadelphia. so here's what you can expect. you see the sun icon here. that's just to show it won't be
raining the entire time here. we could see spot showers, maybe a random down power. some heavier rain building in for the second half of the game. there's batch number one. 1:00, there's that break. so let's hope this continues. we'll continue to it and then the rain fills in this afternoon and this evening the rain will be heavy. a look at your ten day on 10 forecast where we're looking at the stormy weather, our first alert all day today and tonight. remember to have the app out there. 69 degrees. 56 for tomorrow. it's a gusty wind and a chilly morning shower. make sure you have the jackets here tomorrow and then the nice warming trend. oh, halloween looks nice with temperatures around degrees. this week another gop senator jumps ship adding to talk after civil war in the republican party. it will be part of the discussion on this morning "meet the press." joining us now for a preview is moderator of "meet the press," chuck todd. good morning, chuck.
we also want to talk about the russia investigation. we'll get to that in a moment. first, senator jeff flake has been critical of president trump. he certainly was in his book. he's been out there publicly. he says he will not run for re-election. is the republican party now the party of trump? what's going on here? >> that's exactly right because jeff flake isn't running not because he doesn't still want to be a senator. he did. he's not running because he couldn't win, because his criticism of the president made him more unpopular in the republican party. the establishment wing of the party is dominant here in washington, and what we're learning they're now seeing they're out of touch with the majority of republican voters. they're with president trump, pure and simple. if you're not with him, you're going to get punished. that's what happened to jeff flake. for now in this brewing civil war, you have one side that's basically laying down their arms. bob corker not running. jeff flake, not running. a whole bunch of other republicans privately critical deciding not to be critical.
so, look, i think for now we know it is his party, but it's a battle that he won. he hasn't won the full-fledged war. november 2018 will tell us do trump like candidates win general elections? do democrats replace flake and corker or trump-like republicans replace flake and corker? that will tell house is winning this war. >> chuck, nbc news has confirmed that counsel robert mueller will serve up an indictment tomorrow in connection with the russia investigation. still a lot of unanswered questions. how is president trump handling this? how is he receiving this news? >> you can just follow his twitter feed the last two weeks. we've had a slew of people very close to the president either his campaign or in this white house show up for interviews either with the grand jury and bob mueller's investigation or on capitol hill. and the house and senate investigation. that combined with this news, you can see the president has launched a bunch of diversionary tactics, you've seen a ramp-up
in the trump-friendly media trying to focus on hillary clinton. and i think even one of his former managers referred to the clinton administration which doesn't exist, of course. but the point is that's where their focus is. look, we will know the direction of where this probe is headed and the length of it based on who is indicted tomorrow. is it somebody in the center of the investigation, the president's son-in-law, or is it somebody on the periphery they want more information from but broke laws but they found out broke laws in other parts of their work life? and that's why who the individual or individual is tomorrow will tell us more than we know today. >> and maybe want to get information from them. all right, chuck todd, as always, thank you for your insight. i appreciate it. >> thanks, rosemary. >> "meet your press" comes your way at 10:30 this morning. again, 10:30 right here on nbc 10.

raindrop activity and that makes sense. we have that arm of heavy rain working south to north. areas of delaware, you're smothered in the rain right now. it's moving into cape may and atlantic city north of you random pop-up downpours. that's the theme of the day here for today. so here is your eagles game day forecast. the hope is this first batch of rain moves through so that by early afternoon we have more of a scattered shower type of activity. it's not that steady, heavy rain. and then we'll see the rain pick back up again round two. that's what the coastal storm we've been talking about when the winds will start to crank. so here is a look at your ten-day forecast because we have a lot to talk about. that first alert today. make sure you have the app so can you fire it up to zoom down to your street to see where the random pop-up downpours are at 69 degrees. 56 gusty winds for tomorrow. and then we have some milder weather ahead. we'll be back at 9:00 to track that rain for you. >> and a dry day for halloween. >> absolutely. there's good news in the forecast. >> we will be back at 9:00.
